American simply introduced a brand new flight from Dallas Fort-Worth to Reykjavik, Iceland. When I noticed the discharge that American could be going to Iceland I first assumed it could be from Philadelphia, which they take into account their main transatlantic gateway. However Dallas makes a specific amount of sense.
- Most Iceland service is from the East Coast already and Dallas will supply higher connections from the West.
- Wow Air introduced Dallas – Iceland already, and Icelandair did as effectively, so American needs to guard its route community

The new flight goes on sale Monday November 20 and might be operated by a Boeing 757 will lie flat (however not direct aisle entry) seats. These are the identical B/E Aerospace Diamond seats that American makes use of of their premium transcon A321T enterprise class, and that United might be jettisoning for brand spanking new Polaris seats.
And like lots of American’s Ma href=”http://viewfromthewing.boardingarea.com/2017/08/16/american-will-less-international-flying-jfk-build-philadephia/” goal=_blank>new transatlantic route bulletins, this one is seasonal — in fact nobody needs to go to Iceland within the northern winter.
- Dallas – Reykjavik, June 7 – October 26
eight:20 p.m. – 9:15 a.m.+1
- Reykjavik – Dallas, June eight – October 27
11:10 a.m. – 2:50 p.m.
Without connections past Iceland I’d think about this might be a leisure-heavy route and even with simply 16 premium cabin seats it wouldn’t shock me if upgrades had been doable. We’ll see subsequent summer season!
